Has anyone ever had a pin sized hole...

on their breast nipple. I felt a "pinch" and looked and on my nipple there was a tiny, tiny black "speck" - that won't go away. It's scaring me... Sound familiar to anyone? Thanks

Do you have larger, heavy breasts? I am a 38DD and when I am not wearing a bra I can feel tugging on my nipples, but haven't had a tear or speck. I would call your GYN and do a self breast exam in the meantime. Good luck!

No...I am only 110 pounds - breasts are normal size (at least proportionate)... It is a strange speck (pinched at first) - I will have to go to the doctor - I hate when something unusual shows up... Thanks

You need to see one, I think you know that. Unusual things can be a warning. I had rather go to a doctor and find out it's nothing than having waited to long.

IT WAS A SPLINTER! OMG - I can't believe it...I only had the pain for about three days and just as I was about to call the doctor - I noticed it was starting to change... it was a splinter...

Doctor called and said to keep an eye, but I am back to normal... whew!

Oh, I am SO glad to hear that! Now, you HAVE to tell us HOW the splinter got there, Carrie! And was it worth it?

Glad to hear that. One time my son said his nipple was sore, so I took him to the doctor and after examining him the doctor said it was just puberty. I felt kind of dumb, I didn't take chances with my kids health.

Well, here's what I "think" happened... It actually wasn't a wood splinter, more like a little piece of possibly something from knocking against a shrub in my gardens.

The weather was so great (yes, I was wearing a shirt! LOL) and since I only had a thin, long sleeved shirt on - I may have been poked (forgetting that) and something came through the thin shirt..I am only guessing.

Of course, I shower everyday - but just never noticed it until I felt a pinch the next day.

When I looked, it appeared as mentioned "pin sized" and it was dark in color (thinking it may have been dried blood) so that's why I got scared.

It is good, though, I think to be extra concerned than to just blow off things thinking everything is okay... So, vala - you were right in taking him to the doctor... better safe than sorry....
